Housing the Homeless: Mapping the Design Process of Service-enriched Housing
MetadataShow full item record
The homeless demographic fluctuates in response to economic, political, social, and environmental upsets. As the climate of uncontrollable conditions changes, so does the population of those with inadequate shelter. Responsiveness to unpredictable, tumultuous patterns is a crucial determinate for the success of a facility that seeks to alleviate homelessness; namely, a programmatic flexibility that ensures longevity. Also imperative in accommodating the homeless population is the combination of housing and service components in a codependent relationship. An inextricable bond between housing and services encourages a successful union in an unbroken chain of related facilities in a continuum of care.
